Question special

Dr. Noronha left a very helpful response earlier in this discussion alluding to competency in telehealth for physicians and health professionals. To continue that thread, are there any telehealth/telemedicine accreditation bodies that can ensure the quality and safety of telemedicine for patients and providers such as URAC’s Telehealth Accreditation Program? Further, should such programs be created and adopted by institutions and how can these programs be best designed?
